Love is............

Welcome again.
 This is the second release that I have illustrated this week, and  is by 
McMahon Digital and is entitled All Things.

I wanted to use it for a masculine card, so this is a little less 'frilly' than some cards I have made.

As I wanted the image to take centre stage I printed it fairly large, and cut it with a Labels 10 die and sponged the edges with a dark gray ink.

The butterfly was painted with twinkling H2O's

The image was mounted on a lime green card that has a discrete sparkle in it, the edges were sponged with a green ink, and then that was mounted onto a dark green card stock.  The hand died seam binding ( a RAK from Lovely Linda) and the rhinestones were the final touches.

Once again I invite you to visit the other team members and see the wonderful releases there are this week - their names are linked on my side bar.

Thanks so much for visiting - may your day be blessed.
